“A fantastic data center summit event in New York City. The topics were current and the market information was very informative,” said Cushman & Wakefield’s Sean Brady, who has participated in all five prior conferences. “It was also great to meet some of the speakers who are true leaders and visionaries in the third-party data center industry.”

As global data center markets continue to see new demand due to migration of end-user data to cloud service, traditional colocation and wholesale facilities, CAPRE’s Second Annual Greater Montréal & Québec Data Centre Summit will bring new topics under the radar, including:

  • Best practices for hiring data center employees and contractors;
  • How to reduce costs while reducing risk;
  • Analysis of data center opportunities in the Americas vs. Europe;
  • Analysis of network reconfiguration to support evolving needs;
  • Analysis of competitive Canadian markets;
  • Best practices for site selection;
  • A capital markets perspective on the data center industry, including analysis of the most active private equity and venture capital firms.

Expert speakers will discuss trends, patterns, opportunities and challenges, including:

  • What are the implications of new consolidators emerging in the data center arena?
  • What firms were most active in 2017?
  • What types of industry changes might we expect in 2018?
  • How will political changes around the globe impact the data center industry in 2018?
  • What are the new innovations relative to connectivity and data center design?
  • What is the global outlook in 2018 for data center investment and development?
  • Why is there such a huge valuation differential between the “haves” and “have nots” – i.e., scale, cash flow, strategic relevance?
